Overview of Location

Sarawak, a state of Malaysia, is located on Borneo, and it is there that Gunung Mulu National Park may be found. Because of its extraordinary biological value, Mulu has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Gunung Mulu National Park has an impressive 52,000 hectares of unspoiled tropical rainforest, home to a wide variety of flora and wildlife. At 2,376 metres tall, Gunung Mulu towers over the surrounding landscape, which features deeply carved canyons, wild long winding rivers, limestone pinnacles jutting into the sky, towering vegetation that sweeps down onto a remarkable concentration of caves, revealing a geological history spanning over 1.5 million years. You may find fascinating information everywhere. 

Geomorphic and structural features provide scientists, naturalists, and tourists with stunning landscapes, breath-taking beauty, and a deeper knowledge of Earth's past. There are over seventeen vegetation zones displaying around 3,500 species of vascular plants. 

More about Camp 5 and the Mulu Pinnacles

From the thicket of plants that surround them, a succession of 45-meter-tall, razor-sharp limestone spikes emerge. It's like a postcard from the past brought into the present day, with the rocks eroded into sharp spears by water over millennia and poking up through the canopy of the nearby jungle like arrows. 

Seeing the Pinnacles is worth the effort, although it is one of the most difficult hikes in the park. You may reach the Mulu Pinnacles by taking a longboat journey down the Melinau River, then hiking for 9 kilometres to Camp 5, and continue making the steep ascent of 2.4 kilometres up the Pinnacle Summit Trek.  

Due to safety reasons, the National Park has set, in total 4 check-points to the Pinnacle Viewpoint Summit. At each check-point, there is a cut-off time. At any of the check-points, if you miss the cut-off time, you will not be able to continue your climb. 

The Cut-Off Times for Each Check Point for The Mulu Pinnacles Hike is as below: 

TRAILS 

EXPECTED CUT-OFF TIME 

ESTIMATED DEPARTURE TIME 

Camp 5 to 1st Check Point (Mini Pinnacles) 

60 minutes 

6.00 - 6.30am 

1st Check Point to 2nd Check Point (600m A.S.L) 

30 minutes 

7.30am 

2nd Check Point to 3rd Check Point (1000m A.S.L) 

60 minutes 

8.00am 

3rd Check Point to Viewpoint 

45 minutes 

9.00am 

During the first 400m climb to the summit, make sure that you get to the next check point within 60 minutes, then reached the next 1.2km within 30 minutes, 60 minutes to reach the next 2km and 45 minutes to the Pinnacles viewpoint. Not able to reach the checkpoint within any of the cut off times would mean that you won’t be allowed to continue your climb due to safety reasons. 

Camp 5 may be found in the vicinity of the Melinau Gorge, which divides Gunung Benarat and Gunung Api. The camp offers dorm-style sleeping quarters with shared kitchen and bathroom amenities. After making the journey from Long Berar, cool up with a dip in the crystal-clear Melinau River in front of Camp 5. 

More About the Mulu Show-caves

The sheer beauty and originality of the four exhibition caves in Mulu are representative of everything that makes Gunung Mulu National Park a fascinating and valuable World Heritage Site. It is possible for tourists visiting Mulu to explore the cave system without prior caving or spelunking expertise. Deer Cave and Lang's Cave may be accessed through a plank walk through the forest, while Clearwater Cave and Wind Cave can be reached via a longboat ride up the Melinau River, or a 4 km nature route. 

All of the exhibition caves are easily accessible through elevated plank-walks and well-lit walkways, and may be explored in a day excursion from the park headquarters. Stalactite and stalagmite formations at Lang's Cave, for example, are illuminated by carefully placed lights in the display caverns. 

Sample Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival / Deer & Lang Caves / Bat Exodus

Guest arriving at the Mulu Airport will be transferred to the Marriot Stay for check in. In the late afternoon, you’ll be able to meet your local guide in the lobby and travel together to explore Deer Cave and Lang Cave before enjoying a break on the bat exodus platform and watching the bats emerge from the cave entrance. Then, return to your stay and free at your own leisure.  

Mulu Park HQ Longhouse / Benarat Lodge / Mulu Marriott Stay

Day 2

Check out / Batu Bungan / Wind & Clearwater Caves / Kuala Litut / Camp 5

After breakfast, check out and start your journey by longboat to Batu Bungan – Penan Settlement, then to Clearwater Cave and Cave of the Winds. 

Clearwater Cave has a massive entrance, so be prepared to climb some very high stairs to reach it. The local tour guide will go over the cave procedure before you enter the cave. Take a refreshing dip in the cave’s cool stream and soak in the glow of the stalactites and stalagmites that line the cave’s interior. 

Next, marvel at the stunning cave formations while feeling the cool air blow through the cave at Cave of the Winds.  

For lunch, the group will have a nice picnic in the clearing near the cave's entrance to Clearwater Cave. 

Finally, go back on the motorised longboat that will transport you up the Melinau River to Kuala Litut. The boat will need to be pushed over the rocks if the water level is too low for it to float. The 9-kilometer trek from Kuala Litut to Base Camp 5 takes around two to three hours and goes over reasonably level forest terrain. After a restful night at Base Camp 5, enjoy a hearty meal prepared by your local guide. 

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner Base Camp 5

Day 3

Camp 5 / Gunung Api / Pinnacles / Camp 5

Have a hearty breakfast before you start your hike to the Pinnacle Summit at approximately six in the morning. From Camp 5 to the Pinnacles lookout, you'll gain around 1,200 metres in elevation while only travelling 2.4 kilometres. The path ascends precipitously into a moss forest after descending through a lowland dipterocarp forest. Little trees remain, and moss grows on almost everything else. The trail is littered with sharp pieces of limestone, so hikers should make sure to always be cautious. 

Due to the difficulty of the trail's final stretch, 15 aluminum ladders and a rope portion have been strategically placed along the path. The ascent is likely to take you four or five hours. 

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner Base Camp 5

Day 4

Check out / Kuala Litut / Mulu National Park / Mulu Airport

Prepare to depart Base Camp 5 after breakfast. To get back to where you started, you'll hike for nine kilometres to Kuala Litut and then take a longboat ride down the Melinau River. The last section of trails is rather steep; thus, a rope section and 15 aluminum ladders have been carefully put along the route to help hikers scale the rocks. Limestone rocks provide the backdrop for a little patch of vegetation. 

Transfer to Mulu Airport and prepare for your departure.
